    Default Lunch box ideas

    DD starts full days of kindy this year and I realised I have idea what food to send her with. She has a morning and afternoon snack which is fruit/veg but what can i send for her lunch break? Sandwich is an obvious idea but not sure on fillings, it can't be refrigerated and I don't trust using ice locks to keep anything cool. She can't take anything with nuts/possible traces of nuts which rules out all things like muesli bars etc.
    I feel like there are lots of obvious options but I'm just drawing a blank so help please.

    At our kindy they bring the lunch boxes inside in the morning so I just use those 6 can cooler bags with a large ice brick it's still half frozen when I unpack it in the afternoon, just pop the sandwich straight on top of the brick.

    Not what you were wanting to hear but they do work well. Each to their own though

    The weather lately isn't very hot... I'm sure an ice-brick would do fine to keep lunches cool with how the weather is lately (in most parts of Australia).

    I think a sandwich would be filling enough - it just depends on what you put in it. Some meat, salad and cheese would be perfectly filling, and if not, then provide some grapes or something like that to snack on during lunch as well.
